IDW's Chris Ryall confirmed yesterday over at the IDW boards that there was a slight mixup between Diamond and themselves as far as, the release of the Transformers Spotlight: Galvatron that many fans were looking forward to yesterday.

Chris Ryall- "I just got off the phone with Diamond. Unfortunately, GALVATRON is a July book, and for whatever reason, according to them, trying to get a book out in the month before it's solicited threw them off and they held the book over to next week. Sorry--next week for sure, long with the first issue of the New Avengers/Transformers crossover. Feel free to spread this around to any other site that is discussing the book, too."

This was in response to people another post:

Chris Ryall- "In all fairness to Diamond, while we wanted it to come out today, as they explained it to me, their system isn't set up to handle books that move forward in the schedule like this. So it was more of an automated thing, not any sort of hissy fit or petulant move on their part. I'm sure they'd be happy to have another TF book out before the movie, too, it's just that the automated system keeps July books until July and isn't set up to ship them early. Now we know."

And finally yet another response:

Chris Ryall- "Here is our process
1. Our printer sends us shipping lists telling us when books will arrive in the states, when they get to Diamond, when they will be in stores.
2. We confirm these dates with Diamond.
3. We then list these releases on our site.
Now, if someone in a different time zone gets to a shop before we on the West Coast can physically confirm the books are in local shops, and they notice the missing book and contact me, and I look into it and find out that this one didnt arrive like it should've."

These quotes were taken from the IDW forums thanks to clrobe (First Post and it's news!). He posted this in our comics forum in response to a conversation many of us were having about where the heck Galvatron was at!

Thanks clrobe.

Sector Seven has been updated. The password is still DECEPTIBOT.

The site has updated with some new material. SETI is now online and when you click on it you hear sounds and see them scanning for NBEs.

There is a new video where a field unit finds the remains of an MH-53, the one Blackout scanned and destroyed. There are some funny viral videos of small household appliance robots auditioning and being shocked when they see clips from the domestic and international trailers for the movie.

Also Levels 6 and 7 are now viewable on the building schematics. Level 6 has nothing of much interest. Cells, interrogation rooms, and an information extraction chamber.

Level 7 however, houses Megatron. You can click on the room and see his legs and a readout through a surveillance array. The level also has something called "The first seven gallery" Unfortunately one of the cameras of that array is offline and all you can see are three hallways. one dirty, and two clean with ornate designs.

"Me Grimlock, no want ugly paint job!!!! Me pretty as am..."

Regardless, of Grimlock's wishes, my wife and attended the Botcon Customizing Class taught by customizing extra-ordinaire Shawn Tessman. I am fortunate enough to have this be my second Botcon customizing experience, both classes taught by Shawn and both a great time!!!

The class started at 9:00. We were each given ONE Grimlock mint on the sprues, fresh from the factory to paint and put together. This was a little different from last year, but people seemed to adapt fine.

Shawn talked to us about his choices for the mold, that he was told to make his choice, and his first choices, Starscream, and Mirage were being used in the box set (For 'seekers' and 'Translucent Mirage' respectively. He was trying to get something simple to put together, but that would make an interesting repainted character (Astrotrain--too difficult, and Rodimus--too hard to make look different than Rodimus)

Shawn took us through the process of painting the figure and showing us techniques, and offering guidance and hints on how to do this ourselves, with ordinary materials that will not cost a fortune. In fact, I believe he stated most can be found at Walmart!

Just so we would not forget, Shawn also provided us with a booklet to take with us on how to customize in general, and how to make the Overkill using a retail figure.

The class was fun as we expected it to be based on last year's experience, although we found this mold to be particularly difficult to put together after the painting. Many in the class did not end up leaving until well after 4:15 (Try about 9:00PM!).

Shawn did a fantastic job!!! He understood our frustrations, and worked hard with us to maintain our interest, and lower that level of anger that many of us now felt toward the CLASSIC's Grimlock mold.

For those wondering, yes, we were given a DECEPTICON rub sign to put on instead of an AUTOBOT that he would normally come with.

Was it worth $60 (double the price of last year, and no extra figure(s) to take with us that are uncustomized)? My wife and I thought so. Our only disappointment was that we did not get an extra set to keep sealed for our collections even though the price was increased.

Overkill's Unofficial Classics BIO written by Shawn Tessman

Function: Warrior
BIO: Once upon a time, OVERKILL served the Decepticon cause as a warrior and spy. While he had a penchant for ranting and raving on the battlefield, and showing off his abilities more than actually using them, he could still be a frighteningly effective warrior if forced to focus his energies on the task at hand. Occasionally, a glitch in his transformation protocols caused him to remain stuck in cassette size in dinosaur form. Eventually though, the problem became chronic, and then terminal. He was stuck the size of a rat, and his spark could not even be extracted, as his body was too small to safely remove and transplant it.

Overkill's leader also had a problem...a thornin his side named Grimlock. Everywhere he went, the Dinobot was sure to follow. Defeat followed defeat, as he had no soldiers capable of matching Grimlock's ferocity or physical power. Except possibly for Overkill.

The surgeons used data scans of Grimlock to construct a facsimile of his body. They inserted Overkill's cassette form into a special housing built into the chest cavity. Overkill could once again function as a member of the Decepticon military.

Now more powerful than ever, Overkill tends to fight his enemies beyond the point of defeat, but his leader is seriously considering ripping out his vocal might be the only way to shut him up.

Overkill's new body, while not quite the equal of Grimlock, is nevertheless extremely powerful. He carries his original body within the chest housing, and can still utilize it's recording capabilities. His new body has eight speakers that can project various recorded sounds at an excess of 1500 decibels. He is also armed with a combination missile launcher/sword that fires "motion missiles" which home in on the movement of any object larger than a baseball. His new body is quite strong, and he is capable of crushing cars in his jaws and demolishing buildings with the swipe of his tail. Since the spark is encased in his original body, his new form can be beaten to the point of deactivation without actually harming him.

Overkill isn't used to using a bipedal robot mode, and so he usually only transforms when explicitly ordered to do so. He will often try to accomplish tasks in his beast mode that it is simply not designed for. His body is not as strong or resilient as Grimlock's, being constructed from Earth alloys instead of Cybertronian ones. If his chest cavity were to be infiltrated, the connection between robot body and cassette form could be easily interrupted, leaving him helpless. Since his "motion missiles" home in on movement, the best way to defeat him is to stand completely still.

STR: 8
INT: 5
END: 8

Did you know that Michael Bay will be in the Transformers Movie? Well, it won't actually be Bay himself, but somebody will be mimicing his character. Syfy Portal recently spoke with with John Turturro and discovered some interesting information about Turturro’s character, Agent Simmons, who is the head of a top secret military unit called Sector 7.

Turturro told SciFi Wire that he based his performance as a preening government agent in the movie after Bay. "It was mostly Jon Voight's ideas translated from my body," Turturro claimed about his co-star. "Michael Bay was a little bit of an inspiration I would say."

"Michael likes to improvise a little bit," Turturro explained. "Everyone got a chance to do that in certain situations but he encouraged me to improvise and do different things. He's very child-like himself and had a good sense of humor and a lot of energy so I kept looking at him and thinking, I should do it more like Michael Bay -- at least a little bit. I'd tell him sometimes, 'I was doing you.' He's such a narcissist that he was just seeing me through (him). So it's OK."

Lots of Botcon logos showing up in the news lately. Hmmm...wonder why?

Down to business. Each Primus, or minicon package holder received a free Target Pack packaged in a folder. The folder has the Autobot symbol on the cover, and when you push a button the eyes light up!

Inside are the goodies.

Included are:

*The Target Exclusive Transformers Movie Prequel Comic with art by Andrew Wildman (seen earlier on his site).
-The comic also included a robo vision decoder, and a coupon for $5 off the Transformers Video Game (when bought from Target).

*The Transforming Optimus Prime Gift Card. This happens to be a luck of the draw game. Your game card needs to be checked to see if it is loaded with $5, $25, or $500! You can check the website, call, or take it to a local Target to see just how much your card is worth.

Pictures are soon to follow, as soon as the image upload starts working for me again!
